Have you tried Shakeology and if so, what's your opinion of it?
A lot of people are drinking Shakeology lately. My husband loves it. I have friends who are religious about it and swear it changed their life. Have you tried it? For how long? Any results you found from drinking it? (my one result- I don't crace sweets when I drink it).

If you ever felt you wanted to, the BeachBody sales reps are always looking to give out samples. Ask for a sample so you can taste it for yourself.
I did that, got a sample and reviewed it, and my professional opinion (as a former food product developer and technologist and as a current sports nutrition specialist) was that- while there was nothing wrong with the product, there was nothing great about it either. It is a lot of marketing fluff and costs a lot of money. They boast a large amount of "super" ingredients, and while each of these ingredients do pack a nutritional punch the DOSAGE of these ingredients is so insignificant in the shake that there is no value. For much cheaper, someone could get a different type of meal shake that had a better ratio of macronutrients and was more properly fortified for a lot less money.
Taste wise, You could do better for your money as well. I see many people try to mask the taste using banana or peanut butter, but I reviewed the product on its own in water: it had a raw cocoa flavor that was quickly overtaken by the flavor of rancid sacha inchi oil (I later discovered ground sacha inchi was on their ingredient statement).
Just my opinion, but give it a try for yourself!
